October 2010 - September 2011 Booklist [Oct. 6th, 2010|01:59 pm]
Ashley
Hello Everyone! Yep, it's already that time of the year!!!

Last year I only read 10,647 pages. My goal was 12,000 pages. So I fail. Mostly because I didn't read two months in a row, or I was only reading magazines or re-reading stuff I've already read, which I don't count.
I didn't make my goal last year, either, so that is two years in a row!

My goal this year is 13,000 pages. I am confident that I can make it. With all the reading I can get done at work, there is no reason why I shouldn't make my goal this year.
As always, I will be updating this post as the year goes on with the books I have read. I won't post re-reads, or magazines, or graphic novels.
I received a Kindle this year, and any book I read on it will be marked with a "K" next to the page number (ex. 222K). The page count will be taken off of the amazon page, where it lists Print Length.

I am going to start putting up my favorite passages from the books. I will link them on the appropriate book.

I've been doing a book list, too. Just what books I read in the year 2010, and how many pages. I've never done it before so I'm curious to see how much I read! I think you've got me beat! That's a lot of pages!

After this year I will set myself a goal. Thanks for the inspiration!
